"Vidyām avidyām ca: two sides, darkness and light. So you must know two things: what is māyā and what is Kṛṣṇa. Then your knowledge is perfect. Of course, Kṛṣṇa is so nice that somehow or other, if you surrender to Kṛṣṇa, then your all business finished. You automatically will learn what is māyā if you have got full surrender to Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa will give you intelligence from within."
"A man is considered to be rich when he has got enough quantity of grains, enough quantity of, I mean to say, number, enough number of cows. Just like Mahārāja..., Nanda Mahārāja, the foster father of Kṛṣṇa, he was keeping 900,000 cows. And He was rich man. He was mahārāja, king. But see the behavior. His beloved Son, Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma, He's entrusted to take care of the calves or cows: 'Go in the forest'. He is well dressed with ornament and nice dress, everything. All the cowherds boy, they are very rich. They have got enough grains and enough milk. Naturally they'll be rich. But not that the cows and the calves will be taken care of by some hired servant. No. They would take care himself."
